Discover Down Under - Australia singles tour
Event Details Section

 Australia is the only country that has a whole continent to itself. World famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces (beaches, deserts and "the bush" or "the Outback"), Australia is ironically one of the world's most highly urbanized countries and is well known for the cosmopolitan attractions of its globally significant cities, renowned worldwide for its vast, untouched landscape and its unique culture.

Cairns is a vibrant, eclectic city framed by the spectacular twin backdrops of rainforest mountain ranges and the sparkling Coral Sea. Few places on earth can boast such unique natural attractions with the Great Barrier Reef offering an underwater treasure trove of dazzling coral and sea life, and superb World Heritage listed tropical rainforests within easy reach. This area is truly a tropical paradise of beaches, islands, mountains, rivers, waterfalls and lakes, of the legendary outback and a vast wilderness fringed by the Coral Sea.  Along with its rich ecology the Tropical North has inherited wealth of cultures from its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Alice Springs is Australia's most inland town, sitting around 125 miles south of the absolute centre of the continent. Alice Springs grew around a permanent waterhole that was a key terminal for the Overland Telegraph Station in 1870. It became a tough frontier town serviced by camel trains from the railhead at Oodnadatta, until the railway reached it in 1929 and it became a major terminus centre. Today the city, with a population of 25,000 and stylish shopping and dining facilities, provides a perfect base from which to access all of the surrounding natural wonders, including Uluru (Ayer's Rock), and learn more about the local Arrernte Aboriginal tribal group who have inhabited the area for 20,000 years.

Enjoy Sydney's rich cosmopolitan lifestyle, its fine restaurants and cool shopping, as well as the natural beauty of its world famous harbor. Laze on a long, sandy beach, hike in the high country, make a journey to the red outback, soothe your soul in one of the State's many World Heritage national parks, and follow the leisurely drives through country New South Wales. Be amazed by the quality of local food and wine, kick your heels up at lively festivals and events, discover Aboriginal heritage tours, see amazing landscapes and meet the friendly locals.

 Whether you're after adrenalin-pumping adventure, relaxing on sun-kissed beaches, trekking through ancient rainforest or snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, there's an experience waiting to become your treasured memory in Australia.
